Message from Msgr. Schwanger


My Dear Family of Our Lady of Lourdes,

We continue to adjust our schedules in light of our COVID-19 response. We have been successful in expanding the reach of services provided through our webpage.

You can find and do almost everything there! In support of our county’s efforts to tamp down the recent increase of cases we are going to close the parish office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. The office will be open on Mondays to get us up and running for the week and for those things that are easier to accomplish live and in person. It will also be open on Fridays to get us ready for the weekend.

We are also looking ahead at parish liturgies through Christmas. We will need help if we are going to continue the annual Mass of Remembrance on the Feast of All Souls. I want to thank the team that has been arranging for that beautiful liturgy these past years. I know it is a lot of work and that it really has made a difference.

That team, however, is no longer able to carry the work forward. If we are going to be able to continue that tradition, we will need more volunteers and someone willing to act as the leader of the team. Our greatest need in these times is for people willing to take on roles of leadership. Nothing just happens! Everything requires teamwork and organization and every team needs a leader.

If you are interested in helping out as a member of the All Souls Remembrance Mass team and especially if you would be willing to be part of the leadership, please send me an email at .

That is a beautiful Mass and ministry and the parish family needs your help.

Volunteer for All Souls Day.

Msgr. Schwanger
